Biographical Note / Historical Note / Administrative History
A major part of the student experience at Ball State comes from experiences outside of the classroom within the campus housing. For many students this marks their first time living away from home, and the Office of Housing and Residence Life office has existed to work with and assist students in their transition to campus living. Ball State has long offered a variety of housing options to meet with the diverse student body's needs and lifestyles. This collection contains many of the office's promotional and administrative materials recording its record of service to the Ball State community.
